My powers wax, my friends

I’ve got everything back. Everything except an updated “contacts” list in Outlook. The one I’ve had to settle for is several months old, so it lacks only a couple updates.

All my email was saved. All my work stuff was found. I found the contents of my desktop in a file called “userdata” in the file recovery program. In Windows Explorer, the userdata file contained a bunch of nothing. Weird also that a search in the file recovery program returned no .pst files; I had to manually find those bad boys.

Let this be a lesson. If I learn nothing else from this near-fiasco, I’ve learned…okay, I’ve learned nothing. I’ll keep not saving everything on a regular basis, and I’ll keep clicking buttons that I have no business clicking. And that’s just the way it is. Courage.

Ren: You fool! Don’t press that button! That’s the History Eraser button!

Stimpy: So what’ll happen?

Ren: That’s just it! We don’t know! Maybe something bad; maybe something good! I guess we’ll never know. Cause you’re going to guard it. You won’t touch it, will you?
